PODCAST: It Takes a Cosmic Village

Jeffrey Saks Tradition Online | August 21, 2022

This is an Audio Editor’s Note from TRADITION’s newly released Summer 2022 issue—Rabbi Jeffrey Saks reads his essay “It Takes a Cosmic Village” which introduces a special section on Jewish Universalism.

In this column our editor introduces a cluster of essays recently published in our pages, situating them on the intersection of Jewish Universalism and Particularism; or, in Rabbi Soloveitchik’s terms, between the “majestic cosmic sphere” and the humble “here-minded.” 

Saks considers how these themes are of particular import at this moment of political ferment within society at large and within our own religious community – between the polis and the “shtetl.”
